While it may not be something that you think about regularly due to their celebratory nature and the fact that they are only used a few times a year, fireworks can be damaging both to human health and to the environment.

Thankfully, scientists have eco-friendly fireworks in the works. These new pyrotechnics are just as breathtaking, but emit less smoke and less toxic metals than your traditional fireworks.

Implications - As societies become more aware of their environmental conditions, they are eager to embrace green methods of living to reduce their carbon footprints. They appreciate products that have traditional functions, yet were manufactured or perform in eco-friendly ways. Companies can serve green demographics by obtaining a positive environmental identity in the marketplace.
